Don’t look now, but Loy Smoak’s Sell Your Soul Presents…, known for booking some of the crunchiest, down-and-dirtiest hard rock shows around, is bringing a positively sizzling bill of out-of-town, genre-straddling rawk to The Mix this week.
North Carolina’s Toke, for starters, is a doom/stoner rock (duh) three-piece that deftly melds its metal intensity with a rewarding penchant for blues infusion. You can dig Toke’s music at tokenc.bandcamp.com
Greenbeard, hailing from ATX, come with the sludgy, deep-dish stoner fuzz too, but with a psychedelic, trance-inducing approach. Finally, Nashville’s Howling Giant will round out the bill, offering up its mind-expanding, sci-fi/fantasy-influenced brand of searing space rock. Preview Greenbeard and Howling Giant’s music at greenbeard.bandcamp.com
Free, Thu Aug 23, 9pm, The Mix, 2423 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 735-1313, themix-sa.com.
